Michelle Harrelson started this petition to Senator Chuck Grassley and

I made this petition to make sure that the guidelines and criteria for Amber Alerts change. This issue affects every missing child that didn't have an Amber Alert made for them and we need change now! Please sign and share with others!

Xavior Harrelson went missing on a wet, rainy, and colder than normal day at 11am May 27,2021. He's 4'9 approximately 100lbs with Brown hair and Blue eyes.

Because of today's guidelines and criteria for amber alerts there wasn't one issued for Xavior. With the lack of a vehicle description and no known suspect.

Xavior is extremely loved and very missed by his family. We have all come together as a community to share his face on social media. We've had fliers made handed them to anyone who's willing to take them and hung them up all over Iowa. We've asked out of state friends and family to print off more fliers and hang them in their area as well.

There was also a Facebook group created to help spread awareness about Xavior that to date has 14,000+ people nationwide in it. That's still only a fraction of the people it could reach if Amber Alerts were changed.

I feel that if the Amber Alert guidelines and criteria were different, Xavior's face and description could have gotten out a lot faster, and spread out to a wider range of people in a shorter amount of time than what we are able to do right now. 

Xavior needs to come home. More people need to be aware that he's missing, so that he can be found and brought home to a family that aches to hold him again. To see him smile, laugh and tell his silly stories. 

Please help us change something good and make it better to help not just Xavior but all the other missing children with families who love and miss them.
